WAYS FOR CARRYING OUT THE INVENTION

1 shows a side view of an exemplary transport device 23 in the form of an overhead conveyor, as used for transporting a transport bag 10 according to the invention. is suitable; FIG. 2 shows the transport device 23 from FIG. 1 in a direction opposite to the transport direction (arrow in FIG. 1). The transport device 23 comprises carriages 25 which are movably mounted by means of rollers on a running rail 24 and engage around the inside running rail 24 on the outside. Such a transport device is known, for example, from the publications WO 2016/030275 A1 and WO 2016/030274 A1. The transport bag 10 is indicated in the two figures only.

Fig. 3 shows a first embodiment of a transport bag according to the invention. The illustrated transport bag 10.1 has a (raised) rear wall 1 1 and a front wall 1 2, which are both oriented transversely to the rail or conveying direction. The terms "front wall" and "rear wall" refer to the transport direction, wherein the front wall 12 is arranged in the transport direction in front of the rear wall 1 1. In the rear wall 1 1, a connecting means 13 is inserted in the upper region, which makes it possible to attach the transport bag 10.1 hanging on a carriage 25 of the transport device permanently or removably. In the example of FIG. 3, the connecting means 13 comprises a running over the entire width of the rear wall 1 1 crossbar, depart from the central region two vertical connecting elements to the carriage 25.

The actual transport volume of the transport pocket 10.1 corresponds in height to the height of the front wall 12 and extends between an upper pocket closure 14 and a lower pocket closure 16. In the lower pocket closure 16, at the lower edge of the rear wall 11, two guide elements in the form of laterally opposite one another Rolling elements 17a and 17b arranged whose axes of rotation are preferably oriented horizontally and transversely to the transport direction. The rolling elements 17a and 17b may be rollers or wheels in particular. In the upper pocket closure 14, two rolling elements 15a and 15b are arranged laterally opposite one another on the upper edge of the front wall 1 2, whose axes of rotation are also preferably oriented horizontally and transversely to the transport direction and which serve to guide the transport pocket and / or to act on the transport pocket. The rolling elements 15a and 15b may in particular be rollers or wheels. The arrangement of the rolling elements 15a, 15b and 17a, 17b is the same in the embodiment of FIG. 4th

Thus, the transport bag 10.1 for filling and emptying in the intended, explained in more detail later manner easily and reliably placed in a certain position and held there, it is expedient, with respect to the front and rear walls 12 and 1 1 and their connection with each other to comply with certain conditions. Thus, the back wall 1 1 can e.g. In this context, "dimensionally stable" means that the rear wall 11 retains its plate-like wall character even if the position of the transport pocket changes This may in particular be the case if the rear wall 11 and the front wall 12 are sections of a one-piece hollow chamber plate, which preferably consists of plastic, in particular polypropylene (PP), and which is used to form the rear wall 11, The front wall 12 and the bottom between them is bent twice at a suitable distance transversely to the longitudinal direction of the hollow chambers, such that in the case of the hanging transport pocket, the elongated hollow chambers in the rear wall 11 and the front wall 12 run vertically.

But it is also conceivable that the rear wall has only a dimensionally stable frame which is covered with a fabric or a simple or laminated film. The same also applies to the front wall 1 2 of the transport bag 10.1. Front wall 12 and rear wall 1 1 should now be movably connected to one another in the region of the upper pocket closure 14 and in the region of the lower pocket closure 16. As can be better seen on the embodiment of the transport pocket 10.2 shown in FIG. 4 because of the perspective representation, a dimensionally stable, preferably rectangular bracket 18 can be provided for the movable connection between the front wall 1 2 and the rear wall 11 at the upper pocket closure 14. which is mounted pivotably both on the front wall 1 2 and on the rear wall 1 1. The bracket 18 may be formed closed. However, it can also be open if interruptions are provided at the upper edge of the pocket (see FIG. 5). Likewise, a dimensionally stable, preferably rectangular frame 19 or bracket and / or a corresponding dimensionally stable bottom 19 a can be provided for the movable connection between the front wall 12 and the rear wall 1 1 at the bottom pocket closure 16, which on both the front wall 12 and on the rear wall. 1 1 are pivotally mounted. While the bracket 18 is empty for filling and emptying the transport pocket 10.1 or 10.2 through the upper pocket closure 14, the frame 19 can be covered with a fabric or a simple or laminated film, especially if no separate base 19a is provided. If front wall 12 and / or rear wall 1 1 are dimensionally stable in themselves, instead of a closed bracket 18 and frame 19 at the top and bottom, only laterally arranged pivot arms can be provided as a connection between the walls. However, corresponding pivot bearings or hinges are not shown in the figures.

The transport pocket 10. 2 of FIG. 4 has some deviations from the transport pocket 10. 1 of FIG. 3. On the one hand, a connecting means 13 'is provided, which also has a crossbar, but only at two edge points by means of fastening elements 13' a and 1 3'b (rivets, screw connections with washers etc.) is attached to the rear wall 1 1. On the other hand, the front wall 1 1 dimensionally stable, in particular designed as a plate, and has two vertical engaging openings 20 a and 20 b in the form of wide slots through which for certain purposes, which will be discussed later, from the outside to the inside or Transport space 21 of the transport bag 10.2 can be accessed. In the case of FIG. 4, the engagement openings 20a and 20b end at the upper (closed) bracket 18 of the transport pocket 10.2. But they can also, as in the transport bag 10.3 of FIG. 5, be formed continuously, which facilitates the intervention in certain cases. The bracket 18 'is executed interrupted in this case. In Fig. 6 is for the transport bag 10.4, the orientation of the bag with respect to the transport direction 26 in the transport device 23 'clearly visible. The transport device 23 'has in this case carriages or running elements which are movably mounted in the interior of a running rail. Such devices are known, for example, from EP 1 693 322 A1. In this connection, it should be noted that the carriages or running elements of the transport devices or suspension conveyors 23, 23 'can be designed to be individually movable, but can also be interconnected to several in the direction of travel.

Figures 7 and 8 show in a side view how a transport pocket 10.4 according to Figure 6 changes shape depending on whether the pocket is filled (Figure 7) or empty (Figure 8). In the filled state, when the transport bag has 10.4 a cargo 22, for example in the form of a cuboid package, takes the front wall 12 relative to the rear wall 1 1 by appropriate pivoting a position in which they - depending on the thickness of the cargo 22 - a more or less large distance d1 to the rear wall 1 1 has. This distance dl is maximum when bracket 18 or frame 19 are horizontal. When empty (FIG. 8), the front wall 12 folds by pivoting the bracket 18 and frame 19 in a parallelogram configuration due to gravity down and takes so when the empty pockets are kept in a warehouse or a parking position for other transport tasks, little space. The distance between the front wall 12 and the rear wall 1 1 then assumes its minimum value with d2. While in the previous embodiments of the transport bags according to the invention, the rear wall 1 1 regularly towering over the front wall 12 considerably ends in the embodiment of FIG. 9, the rear wall 1 1 of the transport bag 10.5 at the same height as the front wall 1 2. The connecting means 13 " In this case, it is slightly different in that it has three fastening elements distributed over the width.Of course, more fastening points and fastening elements can be provided, in particular for higher transport loads.

10 to 12, an embodiment of the inventive method for filling a transport bag 10 of the type described is now schematically simplified in several steps. In the first step according to FIG. 10, the transport pocket is tilted from the hanging vertical position into a filling position, by moving the pocket with the rolling elements 17a and 17b at the lower end of the rear wall 11 upwards on a rising slide guide 27 with respect to the transport device 23, until the rolling elements 17a and 17b retract into corresponding detent recesses 28 on the slide guide 27 and engage the transport pocket 10 in this position, if at the same time the further transport is interrupted. The tilting is for example made possible by a hinge connection 36 between the connecting means and the carriage 25th In this configuration can - if according to FIG. 4 or 5 corresponding engagement openings 20a and 20b in the lower front wall 1 1 are present - a correspondingly configured roller conveyor 30 with their roles by the engagement soff openings 20a and 20b introduced dipping into the interior of the bag be to allow easy on the rollers len sliding sliding a cargo 22. In order for the front wall 12 to remain stable in its position in this configuration, a fixing device 29 can previously fix the front wall 12 to its rolling elements 1 5a and 15b.

The goods to be transported 22 can be conveyed by means of a further roller conveyor 31, e.g. horizontally (Figure 10) and then, e.g. by means of a sliding mechanism 32, are inserted into the horizontal, open transport bag 10. However, it is also conceivable to provide for the introduction of motor-driven rollers in the roller conveyors 30 and / or 31.

If the item to be transported 22 is completely taken up by the transport bag 10 - although it can definitely stand out of the pocket at the top - the transport bag according to FIG. 12 is brought away from the roller tracks back into the vertical position, for example by moving e.g. the sliding mechanism 32 is retracted, the transport device 23 is moved upward and at the same time the carrying bag 10 is moved upwards on the guide slot 27 and is lifted off the roller conveyor 30.

To empty the carrying bag is shown in FIG. 13 and 14 hanging on the transport device 23, filled transport bag 10 from the free-hanging vertical position by pivoting the rear wall 1 1 to achieve a drainage position so far towards a horizontal position in which the Rear wall 1 1 above the front wall 1 2 is moved, that the transport goods located in the transport bag 10 22, for example, can be transported out obliquely down from the transport bag 10 (Fig. 14). For this purpose, the rolling elements 1 7a and 1 7b of the rear wall 1 1 are moved relative to the transport device 23 upwards on a slotted guide 27 ', wherein the transport bag 10 is moved on the transport device 23 suspended in the transport direction. The rolling elements 17a, 17b, when they reach the emptying position provided for emptying the transport pocket 10, snap into a latching recess 28 'on the slotted guide 27' (FIG. 13). Subsequently, by lowering the transport device 23, the transport pocket 10 with the upper opening further tilted down and at the same time brought through the engagement openings 20a and 20b into engagement with a first roller conveyor a series of roller conveyors 33, 34 and 35, on which the cargo 22 then Roll out of the transport bag 10 and can be transported to a place of issue.
